TruStone Financial awards $1,000 to Good Karma Animal Rescue

PLYMOUTH, MN (January 31, 2017) — Federal Credit Union gave $1,000 to Good Karma Animal Rescue of MN. The animal rescue was one of four finalists in a recent social media campaign, Show Us Your Neighborgood. The campaign also provided donations to three other non-profit organizations across the Midwest, making the total contribution to all non-profit organizations $1,500.

 The four-week Facebook contest encouraged users to submit a selfie volunteering at their favorite charity. At the end of each week, the photos were voted upon to determine the winning volunteer and charity. A final voting period was held for the four finalists.

 “TruStone Financial has always been rooted in thecommunities we serve,” states Katie Grindeland, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “This was an uplifting social media contest with so many deserving non-profit organizations. The campaign embodied the credit union philosophy of people-helping-people. It’s an honor to support organizations that share this same passion.”

 “This is just amazing! Good Karma just saved the lives of multiple dogs in Louisiana and brought them to Minnesota,” said Kate Lamers, Good Karma volunteer and contest participant. “The timing couldn’t be more perfect.”
